I would agree with the reliability issues. But we do need new tierods. My biggest complaint with this van is the functionality of the cruise control. I am used to GM and Ford--easy to locate and use. This van has an on/off button on the dash and the rest of the buttons on the steering wheel. My on/off button doesn't light up--so I have to feel around for it to turn the cuise on...then I have to set it with the steering wheel button. I guess my other complaint is the road noise. It is not a quiet riding van. I don't mind engine noise---but wind and road noise is terrible.

Really nice install on the player.

I should not have spoken....

That O2 Sensor went off because the exhaust manifold bolts are snapping off one by one..
something I have now found out is way to common and not cheap.
It goes in for its $1200 repair on monday


Then i sit back and pray they issue a recall so I can collect my money back.
There are HUNDREDS reported....and Im sure there are THOUSANDS out there with this issue.....errrrrrr

Working on vans is a PITA, but maybe you could do it?
